Experience & Expertise

We regularly act on behalf of Swiss and foreign banks and other financial institutions across a broad range of regulatory matters, such as:

  • Establishment and licensing of Swiss banks, securities dealers and insurance companies;
  • Advise on all aspects of financial services regulation and prudential rules;
  • Structuring capital transactions for banks;
  • Mergers and acquisitions of financial institutions;
  • Insider dealing and market abuse, disclosure requirements, and legal and administrative assistance. In several cases, members of our team have been appointed by FINMA to act as agents in enforcement proceedings and other prudential matters.

On the transactional side, we advise on finance transactions and the (re-)structuring thereof. Among them are:

  • Structured finance transactions (such as Tier 1 and Tier 2 transactions, factoring, asset-backed securities);
  • Asset management matters and investment law, such as structuring, licensing and distribution of Swiss and foreign collective investment schemes, fund management and asset management companies;
  • Syndicated loan facilities and acquisition finance;
  • Derivatives and structured products;
  • Listing of financial instruments at the SIX Swiss Exchange, where several members of our team are admitted as recognized representatives of issuers.
